    I've made pizzas for over 30 years! First time making a white margarita pizza! Loved it!

    This pizza is fabulous! Not greasy, not too cheesy (though I leave out the ricotta because I don't care for it.) The beauty of this pizza is that the fresh taste of the tomatoes and basil shine through. You don't feel like you have a rock in your belly when you finish a few slices. Have made it multiple times, now and I still love it.

    Creamy and rich pizza! I had a ton of ricotta to use up and found this recipe. The only change I made was to saute some minced garlic and a little bit of mince onion in olive oil and add that to the ricotta for some extra flavor. I also used a bit less cheese. This was a nice change from our usual pizza night. Thanks for posting the recipe.

    I actually thought this was a terrible recipe. there was WAAAAAY too much ricotta cheese and the flavor was SO bland. I even mixed chopped garlic into the ricotta cheese and still it was nearly tasteless. Will not make again.

    I really enjoyed this pizza. I mixed the olive oil with the garlic powder (and added parm) and brushed that mixture over the crust (used the pizza dough from Recipe #1005). I decreased the cheese - a lot, I didn't even use a whole 2 cups, and found that + the ricotta (part skim) was plenty. That was the only change I made, and I'm really looking foward to making/eating this again.
